Callistemon is an aromatic genus of family Myrtaceae. It possesses essential oil in almost all parts of the plant body. The oil is Callistemon
characterized by the dominance of monoterpenes 1,8-cineole, -pinene and -terpineol. It has been reported to inhibit germination and viz. α α
early growth of many agricultural and wasteland weeds by altering the photosynthetic and respiratory metabolism of target plants. There
are many scientific reports which confirm it’s antimicrobial, insecticidal, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. This review discusses
the morphological, physicochemical and allelopathic properties of essential oil of with a view to explore its bio-herbicidal Callistemon
